Untimely maintenance activities resulting from budget fluctuations and improper prioritization can lead to further pavement deterioration. Selecting the most cost-effective maintenance activities to control and minimize road users' risk under current budget constraints is necessary. The study tried to fill the gap that decision-makers in Addis Ababa City Road Authority often performed pavement repair and maintenance without considering a systematic procedure. Ten road sections selected that are planned for pavement maintenance in the study area. The most dominant distresses ranked in Decision Analysis Module in Excel, including road class, weights for each criterion, and sub-criteria obtained using the Analytical Hierarchy Process approach and calculated in Super Decision Software for maintenance prioritization. Results indicated that the developed analytical hierarchy process model works sufficiently and yields adequate output for providing accurate decisions. Hence, considering the multi-criteria to prioritize the pavement sections for maintenance, this model can give affirmative action for the decision-maker.
